Doncaster Rovers: '˜We'll get out of it' - Evina
Cedric Evina insists Doncaster Rovers have the quality - and belief - to get back on track sooner rather than later.
Rovers have not won in seven attempts and scored just twice in their last five games.
It is a stark contrast from Darren Ferguson’s first two and a bit months in charge, which produced nine wins from 15 and an average of almost two goals per game.
Doncaster’s poor run of form has left them just three points above the League One drop zone.
But Evina - who reckons Rovers deserved to beat Barnsley at the weekend - is confident the club can turn a corner before the situation worsens.
“We’re not thinking about being in a relegation battle but we obviously have to be realistic and look at the league,” said Evina.
“We know we have got the quality in the team.
“We’re not getting battered 3-0 or 4-0, it’s always 2-1, 1-0. We’ll get out of it.”
Without a win since January 2, Evina accepts confidence has been knocked but he says the squad is still singing from the same hymn sheet.
“I think we’ve been missing a bit of luck and we need to be a bit more lethal in the final third,” said Evina, when asked about what has been missing recently.
“Confidence is always going to take a little knock if you lose two, three, four on the bounce. But the belief is still there.
“We know what we’re trying to do, and we know where the football club is going. We’ll be back.
“It’s important for us to look back on the stuff we did well,” he added.
“You don’t become a bad team overnight. Every team goes through a period when they go on a bad run. The quicker you can get out of it, the better. Hopefully we’ll do that at the weekend.”
